First hand

Filed under: Uncategorized — andykiff @ 7:24 pm

John 4:42 They said to the woman, “It is no longer because of what you said that we believe, for we have heard for ourselves, and we know that this is indeed the Savior of the world.”

Second-hand knowledge of You just isn’t enough.  It can be a start in getting to know you, being introduced by someone else and learning what they can share.  In the end, though someone else’s faith isn’t enough though.  I can’t rely on another person’s experience of You to get me through tough times.  I can’t gain cheap knowledge and expect it to have a deep impact on me.

The great thing is that I don’t have to base my relationship with You on anyone else.  I have a direct line to you anytime through prayer and Your word.  I also have other people around me that can encourage, educate, correct and disciple me but I don’t have to rely on them.  I can come straight to the throne of the creator of the universe.  And that is truly amazing.

Thank You Lord that You place me in a family but treat me as an individual.  May I never trade my relationship with You for someone else’s.
